Re: Positive feedback for FAIR Traders

Just conducted my first business on this forum last week with: GB (since his name is all but impossible to search for in this thread) Very positive first experience - he gets 4 out of 4 on my basic four point scale: - the advertised product - in the advertised condition - for a reasonable price - wi...

Re: Is anybody still using windows 2000?

Colonel O'Neill - thanks for the link. Looks like a lot of good stuff to be found in there. Much appreciated. mnowell69 - I first became security paranoid when my computer got hacked sophomore year of college. Someone was using it to download movies, and I got busted for it. They only made me go an...

Re: Is anybody still using windows 2000?

This thread brings up a question I've had for a while. I've got an old a22m that still has Windows 2000 on it. (It's not my main machine obviously, although over the years it has been occasionally thrust into emergency service when I only had one other machine and something went wrong with it. That,...

Re: 1.8" SATA to 2.5" IDE converter?

Well then, it looks like I may be the sucker that pulls the trigger and gives this a try. Now the question is: Gen1 or Gen2 X18-M? It may seem like a no-brainer at first, but between debaitmonitor's reports that the Gen1 was so much more trouble-free, and this article - http://www.anandtech.com/show...

Re: 1.8" SATA to 2.5" IDE converter?

Johan, you can count me as at least one person watching this thread with great interest. Please do continue to update us! Actually, I'm trying to find a way to put an SSD into a 10 year old a22m. (Don't ask - money is not a factor (to an extent), and this thing has a ton of nostalgia value.) I've mo...

Re: Has anyone tried an SSD in the X41? *PICS*

Ok, figured out where my main confusion is. I misread your benchmarks in the other thread and interpreted the Transcend benchmarks as being for the CF, not the SSD. Oh well, there goes another grand plan down the toilet. ... But that's okay, because I've just had a brainstorm - an idea so off the wa...

Re: Has anyone tried an SSD in the X41? *PICS*

So you do think, then, that an MLC would be viable for me, even with paging / swap enabled? I've had this computer for a decade, and my goal is to still be using it another decade from now (not exclusively, of course!). Having a dead boot device in a year (when finding compatible parts will be even ...

Re: Has anyone tried an SSD in the X41? *PICS*

Greetings. So I've spent more hours researching my laptop upgrade than any human being should, and every time I think I've got a fair handle on my options, somehow or another a wrench gets thrown into the works. So here I am, reduced to asking advice... please have pity. (Summary of my project follo...
